While a majority of us only consider breaking away from the mundane cycle of our 9-5 desk jobs, a group of intrepid millennials are redefining what it means to embrace the present by seizing the proverbial bull by the horns and combining remote working and travel into an enviable lifestyle of exploration. This group, fondly known as digital nomads, are arguably the bravest and most exciting personalities to be associated with because they know exactly what they want to do and how they want to get it done. So what is it that makes the nomadic lifestyle viable? One word: technology.
“What digital nomads appreciate most is mobility – the ability to get things done from anywhere and at any time they see fit. They rely heavily on smartphones, laptops and tablets for work and connectivity purposes; and the Galaxy Note8 is the ideal addition to that lifestyle,” said Julian Thean, Head of Product Marketing, IT and Mobile Business, Samsung Malaysia Electronics.
The S Pen is by far the most versatile tool made up of an intuitive design and powerful functions to make multi-tasking a breeze. For digital nomads, ideas flow at any given time so penning them down quickly is vital. For this, there is the Screen-Off Memo where notes can be written on the screen without unlocking the phone. Work becomes convenient with Screen Write where articles, emails and documents are easily saved as one image and annotations can be added to work files for easy reference. The Scroll Capture feature brings screenshots to the next level as it is able to capture entire web pages (up to 100 pages) into one handy shareable file.
Digital nomads can ditch their bulky cameras and travel light with smartphones like the Galaxy Note8 and S8/S8+ that capture great images that rival professional camera quality. The Dual-Pixel Sensor, wide aperture and fast autofocus of the 12MP F1.7 rear camera work together to create beautiful photographs, even in low-light conditions.
Try the Galaxy dual camera with dual OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation). For added creative control, the new Live Focus feature lets users adjust the bokeh effect before and after the photo is taken. In Dual Capture mode, both cameras work simultaneously to capture two separate images – one close-up shot from the telephoto lens and one wide-angle shot that show the entire background – so you will never miss a moment.
For the more focused digital nomads, there is the Samsung DeX for an inclusive mobile desktop experience. Digital nomads will find DeX very useful because it allows them to use their Galaxy Note8 and S8/S8+ as they would with a desktop, by providing a seamless, secure mobile-to-PC transition.
The popularity of digital nomadism owes itself to the rapid development of modern society, and advances in technology and attitudes could make digital nomadism and remote working not only easier but also more popular than it already is. Samsung fills the gap by offering the best in smartphone technology, providing digital nomads with the flexibility to multitask and freedom to create, express and document their work-life journey.
